Advantages of Leasing

For virtually every business, one key factor to success is the ability to offer products and services – efficiently – to customers.  And that ability requires staying up to date with technology.  You need equipment that will help you stay competitive, or ideally, help gain an advantage.

Over the years, leasing has emerged as a very attractive alternative to purchasing.  Why?  There are several reasons.  Leasing:

  • Preserves capital/cash.  Leasing allows your company to acquire valuable equipment without depleting working capital.  You’ll save money because you’ll be paying only for a portion of the equipment’s service life.
  • Offers an additional credit source.  Leasing preserves your bank line of credit for what it’s intended – to cover day-to-day working capital requirements
  • Offers tax advantages.  Depending on the type of lease, lease payments may be treated as monthly rental expenses, which are fully deductible.
  • Protects against inflation.  Lease payments are fixed payments.  They will not increase when interest rates rise.
  • Protects against obsolescence.  Leasing allows you to “trade up” to new equipment and take advantage of new technology.
  • Simplifies equipment acquisition.  Leasing provides 100% financing, by including applicable taxes, shipping, and installation.  It also simplifies your accounting records.
  • Offers flexibility.  Leasing offers a variety of plans and terms, to suit your needs.
  • Bypasses capital budget restrictions.  Lease payments are treated as an operating expense, which allows your company to acquire equipment as needed, and bypass annual budget negotiations.
